The University of Virginia (often abbreviated as UVA, UVa, or Virginia) is a public research university in Charlottesville, Virginia, United States. It was conceived and designed by U.S. President Thomas Jefferson, and established in 1819. UVA's initial Board of Visitors included former Presidents of the United States Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, and James Monroe. Monroe owned the initial site of the University, which was mostly farmland. His law office and farmhouse are now the site of Brown College at Monroe Hill, a residential college at UVA.

The D. E. Shaw group pursues attractive and sustainable risk-adjusted returns on the capital we invest for our clients. The firm invests globally using a broad array of strategies in both public and private markets. Widely recognized as a pioneer in quantitative investing, particularly in equities, futures, and options, the firm also has formidable expertise in areas that involve fundamental analysis or portfolio manager discretion, such as credit, energy, and macro investing. Regardless of the particular strategy, each investment decision is made in the context of a rigorous analytical approach that seeks to carefully identify and weigh potential risks and rewards. The firm's investment activities fall into two broad areas: Alternative Investments Strategies focused on the delivery of absolute returns, with low targeted correlation to traditional assets like equities, account for around $21 billion of the firm's investment capital. Our alternative investment program dates to 1989 and consists of both larger, core multi-strategy investment vehicles and more focused, strategy-specific investment products. Benchmark-Relative Investments A suite of long-only and "130/30" equity investment strategies, in either commingled investment vehicles or separately managed accounts, collectively represent approximately $7 billion of the firm's investment capital. These strategies, begun in the year 2000, enable institutional investors to customize their exposure to a particular benchmark index and to choose a targeted level of risk.
